Another baby rhino is born in Botswana. According to the team at &Beyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge, this calf was spotted toward the end of last week. The calf is from the batch of rhino that was translocated May 2015 as part of the Rhinos Without Borders project.
With the world’s rhino species increasingly threatened by the rapidly growing scourge of poaching, World Rhino Day provides the ideal opportunity to celebrate the steps taken to protect these iconic animals. Since starting in 2010, the day has grown into a global phenomenon that has united NGOs, wildlife organisations, businesses and concerned individuals from around the world by encouraging them to create fundraising events for the species on 22 September each year.
We have a number of initiatives underway which will be highlighted on the day and will be posting updates from the event on social media. You’re welcome to follow the conversation (#WorldRhinoDay, #Rhino, #Rhinos, #RhinosWithoutBorders, #CareOfTheWildlife).
